Independence Day: Where to Celebrate July 4th in Denver

Nothing is more American than rooting for your favorite sports team as they make a run for the playoffs. This 4th of July, all three Denver summer teams will be in town, so grab your rally caps and head on out to the ball park, pitch or stadium to cheer on the city’s best. Not into sports? Fear not, we’ve got music lovers and art aficionados covered, too.

Colorado Rockies:  In a heated battle for the top of the National League West, the Colorado Rockies will play a three-game series against division rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers July 2, 3 and 4 with fireworks after the July 4 game. Before the game, be sure to stop by the Sandlot for some Blue Moon Brewery beers. Tickets start at only $21.50 so get your tickets for the Rockies most popular game early.

Colorado Rapids:  For sports fans of European football, your Colorado Rapids will take on the New York Red Bulls Thursday, July 4, with fireworks after the game. The game starts at 7:30 PM and is at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. Tickets start at $29.

Denver Outlaws:  In just seven seasons, the Denver Outlaws lacrosse team has been making a name for themselves as the only Major League Lacrosse team in the West. It doesn’t hurt that they play in Sports Authority Field at Mile High, home of the Broncos, either. The Outlaws July 4 game is against the New York Lizards and will feature fireworks afterward. Tickets are from $10 to $50 and the game starts at 7 PM.

Hudson Gardens:  Start your holiday weekend early with this special show at Hudson Gardens, staring Super Diamond on Wednesday, July 3, complete with fireworks after the show. One of Denver’s favorite bands, Super Diamond, pays homage to the man, Neil Diamond, by performing his greatest hits with Surreal Neil at the front. Tickets are $25 and include the fireworks show. Ticket holders are allowed to bring in their own food for pre-concert picnics, but bottled water is the only drink allowed in from outside. Hudson Gardens will have food trucks from Street Eats and beer and wine for sale on site.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre:  Red Rocks always has great 4th of July shows and this year variety is the name of the game. Start the holiday early with Michael Franti & Spearhead on July 3. The next day is Denver favorite Blues Traveler and on Friday and Saturday, July 5 and 6, is The Avett Brothers (Saturday is sold out). Finish the weekend with Josh Groban and the Colorado Symphony on Sunday, July 7. Tailgating in the parking lot is permitting and all sorts of adult beverages will be available for purchase inside.

Cherry Creek Arts Festival:  For 22 years, Cherry Creek has put on Denver’s best and most lucrative arts festival over the holiday weekend and 2013 will not disappoint. Starting Friday, July 5, through Sunday, July 7, a square mile of the Cherry Creek North shopping district will close down to traffic and instead showcase some of the country’s best artists in a variety of mediums. Live bands, an outdoor food court and beer garden will also available when it’s time to take a break. Several wine tents will be set up around the grounds for those who prefer to sip chardonnay while admiring art. The event is free and all the restaurants in Cherry Creek will be offering food and drink specials.
